Nice talk. I noted a minor error in the slides. On several occasions you check for the "<" operator but then uses the ">" operator in the actual body of the function/template.

It's valid to pass an empty list. Compilation will fail when T.length = 1 for 'x[1]'.

Andrei is really looking embarrassed telling this like if he knows it's a lie but he has to say it because something forces him to do it... He waged somebody it? :)

I have noticed that too but technically it is correct because if < compiles in D, > will compile too. (They are both backed by the same opCmp()).

But I agree that it should have been the > operator in the template constraint for at least for simplicity.

I think "lie" would be pushing it. The point made is clear albeit I rendered it clumsily - static if does not attempt to compile the branch not taken.

And I even haven't mentioned my point. These videos are great for D newbies (and also very good for other bastards like me too) and should be listed on dlang.org just like articles because it isn't obvious for a newbie to search through the NG for videos (and, maybe, some videos supersedes older ones).

It's pity that a video is read-only and it isn't easy to fix slips of the tongue like this one. Maybe some notes can be added?

Anyway, these (Andrei's and Walter's) videos are too good to not list them on the site.

I've cleaned up the wiki a bit and added them:

You could actually add them here and link to it:
http://prowiki.org/wiki4d/wiki.cgi?Videos
I made that page a long while ago but I didn't really know where to

Damn, I didn't know about this page. And it looks like I'm not alone.

D wiki is really a maze for me (or I just don't understand something?). It contains lots of outdated info mixed with some up-to-date info. I thought that D wiki is only for experienced D developers who know what is outdated and what is not, what info does wiki contains and where is this info.

So I'd like to see videos on dlang.org.

No, it is most certainly for new D users, and that is the problem. New users don't know what needs updated. Experienced users aren't going to find useful information on the wiki so it isn't "vetted" constantly.

Having SomeDude take his inexperience to change the pages in what would have helped him is a great contribution.
